Wi-Fi Dog Fences

Dogs are great family pets. They are very loyal, loving, and friendly animals. A pet dog is a great playmate, and if running is your hobby then dogs are probably the best. A famous song by Baha Men – “Who let the dogs out {woof, woof, woof, woof…}”, is so true about you worrying where your dog is? Are you in a dilemma or confronting a difficult situation with your dog every time you let it out? Are you always concerned for your dog’s safety, as to how best to let it out and roam around your yard? Ever wondered that it might go towards the road or take a wondering missing? Does it make you conscious and alarmed every time you let it out of the house? Earlier dog owners used to build fences, walls, and railings, etc, to keep a check on the dogs. You have to realize that dogs are inquisitive, lively, and frolicsome, by nature and you cannot burden yourself all the time with their safety. As a dog owner, you can condition your animal by employing transient borders indicators as an aid to define the pet boundary. Excited? Yes, you can consider about installing Wi-Fi dog fences. 
How To Choose A Wireless Dog Fence 
  • Wireless and Wi-Fi dog fences are easy to install without underground wires, and are highly portable and fast to set up. Wireless dog fences do not require buried wires. Although the underground pet fence transmitters can be moved from home to home, you have to dig out the wires from the first place and bury a second set of wires at the new location. The dog fence wireless transmitters can be moved simply by unplugging the antennae wires and power.
  • The wireless dog fences work differently. They have a base station that sends out a signal in a simple circular pattern. Your dog wears a receiver that constantly searches for this circular signal. For some reason if the dog wearing the receiver loses the signal, the dog receives a warning tone and then correction stimulation. This ideally happens only when your pet leaves the circle you have decided as its safe zone.
  • When you select a wireless model, consider buying the one, which is designed to not ‘correct’ during power shutdown or if the battery backup unit fails. Remember that you can receive a correction signal anytime the collar receiver loses the base station signal or if the battery is low and needs recharging. It also alerts the owner instantly if the dog challenges the boundary. Also, make sure it has fast and safe shut off feature.
  • The flipside of Wi-Fi is that it has a poor battery life. Make sure you charge your batteries each week if you are using rechargeable battery. The rechargeable batteries work only for 6-7 hours, otherwise the pets receiver can go into a high gear to find the base signal.
  • Wireless fences can be configured in any shape and zones. They can be included in pool, backyard, or even flower garden. They can be used to protect your pet by using just one transmitter.
  • Wi-Fi systems are ideal for flat yards without any difficulties. The transmitter works within the line of sight of the dog. If the property is not plain and has any ditches and hills, the dog can still receive a zap signal if it’s still in your yard. So when buying a Wi-Fi, consider the integrity of the signal. Wireless dog fence protection zones are limited to a 90-feet radius or 200-feet radius area.
  • Wi-Fi units result in the reduction of performance if there is any large metal object such as water tanks, metal buildings, automobiles, or any other metal object obstructing the base signal. The closer the object to the base station, the greater is the potential of unwanted interference.
